    Gets my vote too. Great selection and awesome customer service.

    I'm sure someone's posted it, but an OT member has a site too.

    Buy used, sell when done. Name brand lenses hold their value very well, so you're not going to lose much (if anything) when you sell. I've bought lenses in the spring, used them all summer long and sold them in the fall for the same price I paid. The only money I was out was the shipping fees from when I initially purchased them.

    i thought the point of renting is you cant afford them in the first place.
